20 Quotes to Inspire Your Prayer-Life

“With the help of the Holy Ghost, we can watch over ourselves. We can pray to recognize and reject the first thoughts of sin. We can pray to recognize a warning not to speak words which would hurt or tempt someone else. And we can, when we must, pray for the humility and the faith to repent.” ~Henri Eyring

Accept my prayer as incense offered to you, and my upraised hands as an evening offering. Psalm 141:2

“In the silence of the heart God speaks. If you face God in prayer and silence, God will speak to you. Then you will know that you are nothing. It is only when you realize your nothingness, your emptiness, that God can fill you with Himself. Souls of prayer are souls of great silence.” ~Mother Teresa

But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you. Matthew 5:44

“Grant me, O Lord my God, a mind to know you, a heart to seek you, wisdom to find you, conduct pleasing to you, faithful perseverance in waiting for you, and a hope of finally embracing you. Amen.” ~Thomas Aquinas

But when you pray, go away by yourself, shut the door behind you, and pray to your Father in private. Then your Father, who sees everything, will reward you. Matthew 6:6

“Remember: He WANTS your fellowship, and He has done everything possible to make it a reality. He has forgiven your sins, at the cost of His own dear Son. He has given you His Word, and the priceless privilege of prayer and worship.” ~Billy Graham

 Again, I assure you: If two of you on earth agree about any matter that you pray for, it will be done for you by My Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there among them.” Matthew 18:19–20

“There is not in the world a kind of life more sweet and delightful than that of a continual conversation with God.” ~Brother Lawrence

 But you, dear friends, as you build yourselves up in your most holy faith and pray in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, expecting the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ for eternal life. Jude 1:20–21

“Concerning everything we have to pray. Not simply when great troubles come, when our house is on fire, or our beloved wife is on the point of death, or our dear children are laid down in sickness, not simply at such times, but also in little things. From the very early morning, let us make everything a matter of prayer, and let it be so throughout the day, and throughout our whole life.” ~George Muller

Pray like this:
Our Father in heaven, may your name be kept holy.

May your Kingdom come soon.
May your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us today the food we need, and forgive us our sins,
as we have forgiven those who sin against us.

And don’t let us yield to temptation, but rescue us from the evil one.
Matthew 6:9–13

There has never been a spiritual awakening in any country or locality that did not begin in united prayer. ~A.T. Pierson

I prayed to the Lord, and he answered me. He freed me from all my fears.  Psalm 34:4

“It matters little what form of prayer we adopt or how many words we use. What matters is the faith which lays hold on God, knowing that He knows our needs before we even ask Him. That is what gives Christian prayer its boundless confidence and its joyous certainty.” ~Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done. Philippians 4:6

Gentlemen, I have lived a long time and am convinced that God governs in the affairs of men. If a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid? I move that prayer imploring the assistance of Heaven be held every morning before we proceed to business. ~ Benjamin Franklin

Rejoice in hope; be patient in affliction; be persistent in prayer. Romans 12:12

    1. Sarah Ann, You are such a blessing to so many of us. Thank you! I loved your Mother’s Day post. I completely agree!

  1. Jude 1″20-21 is the one I like. This are so good to have on hand to reminds us to pray at all times. I want my life to be a ceaseless prayer…always walking in the knowledge He knows my prayer need even before I lift them up yet He still wants me to bring them to Him, what love He has for us.

  2. What a wonderful post to give inspiration to spur us on to more prayer in our lives!

    I especially liked the quotes from George Muller and Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Very edifying!

    Thanks so much for sharing!

  3. I love your scriptures! Such a great idea! Visiting from Woman to Woman. It’s easy to get discouraged when praying and having these available would definitely help. Blessings, Diane

    1. Thank you Diane! George Muller always inspires my prayer-life. The testimony of the ways God answers pray urges us on to “never stop praying.” Blessings to you!

  4. These were all absolutely inspiring, Deb, but the one which hit me the most was the one from Brother Lawrence. When I am writing, I always feel that I am in constant contact with God through the Holy Spirit. It’s a closeness and a certainty I can’t really describe except to call it a conversation. He is helping me learn what it means to pray without ceasing. Blessings!

  5. I tend to focus on Biblical teachers for faith quotes. I love when I find a political leader who inspires and encourages me toward the greatness of God. Thanks and blessings!

  6. There has never been a spiritual awakening in any country or locality that did not begin in united prayer. ~A.T. Pierson
